CORAM, N.Y. (AP) — A New York man wearing a T-shirt declaring "I'm a drunk" is facing DWI charges after a collision with a police car.

Suffolk County police arrested 23-year-old Kevin Daly of Coram. They say he crashed into an officer's vehicle at about 1:45 a.m. Thursday. The officer was treated for minor injuries.

Daly, who is unemployed, was wearing the T-shirt in a mug shot provided by police. It reads: "I'm not an alcoholic / I'm a drunk / Alcoholics go to meetings."

He was ordered held on $10,000 bail at his arraignment and was issued several traffic summonses. He was represented by an attorney from Legal Aid, which has a policy of not commenting on pending cases.

Daly is due back in court Wednesday.

Did they give him a sobriety test? If not, case closed.

My guess is that the police DON'T generally give out DUIs willy nilly, or just because a tee-shirt has the word "alcohol".

The story neglects to mention whether he actually was drunk or not. Retarded journalism!

It does say he was charged with DWI. If he was actually drunk or not is up to the courts. Innocent until proven guilty. Chances are, this charge means either he refused to do a breathalyzer, or was actually drunk.

This is a story from where i live. The cop was actually in route to setup a dwi check point. Yes he was drunk when he crashed

Here is a better story about it.

http://www.newsday.c...l-car-1.3328073

"Daly, who was represented by the Legal Aid Society, pleaded not guilty at his arraignment in First District Court in Central Islip, where prosecutors said a blood-alcohol breath test showed he had a blood-alcohol level of 0.11. The legal limit is 0.08."

and

"
Clifford said Daly told police at the scene, "I tried to stop but I was going too fast for my brakes to stop on the wet road."
He also said Daly told officers that he had two or three beers and "I deserve whatever I get. I was drinking and driving."
